Certified Bad-asses: Daredevils Chillin’ in Hammocks in the Italian Alps Like It’s Nothing

Most people have an irrational fear of heights. Not these fearless, death-defying dudes, who picked their hammocks up and hung 'em high at the Italian Alps. To do what? Well, nothing, really. Some smoked, others stared at the sky, others had a good laugh with their neighbors... A total of 16 dudes were harnessed to the 164-foot long double line.

As to how they got down from there (or got on their hammocks in the first place!)--well, I leave that part for the folks with non-queasy stomachs.

Video Game Controllers You Can Eat…Well, Sort Of!

Chocolate. Video games. And more chocolate. What's not to love? ThinkGeek's newest molds combine both, and while you can't exactly play 'em, you can eat a whole tray of 'em and get your fill. We're talking about video game controller-shaped chocolates that you can make with this kooky mold that can churn out up to six different controller treats at a time.

Aside from chocolate, you can use it to make ice, cakes, candy, and other stuff. Maybe even beer-infused controller cakes, if you're feeling crafty. Who says real men don't bake?

My Kinda Brains: Skull-Shaped Pizza Rolls

Brains aren't very appetizing, but if they're made from a mix of pepperoni and cheese, then what's not to love? Presenting... the skull-shaped pizza rolls baked with ghastly perfection by Beth at Hungry Happenings. All you need are some pretty basic baking skillz plus a skeleton-shaped baking pan, because without it, all you'll have is a pepperoni-and-cheese-filled lump that's no fun.

This will be a hit for sure come October 31st. Are you ready?

Darth Vader Cufflinks: The Dark Side of Your Cuff

Nobody's going to be handing Darth Vader any fashion awards anytime soon (unless he's got them by his lightsaber), but you gotta admit, he at least gets an award for being consistent. Signature cape, signature helmet, signature gloves, signature shin guards, signature black everything. His helmet is probably one of the most easy to recognize out of all villain helmets out there--and now you can wear it on your sleeve.

Don't be one of those dudes who wear their hearts on those sleeves (yuk!) Be a bad-ass with Vader on your cuffs instead with these Darth Vader cufflinks. They're handmade with a fixed black closure that'll add a little zing to your otherwise plain outfit.

What NOT To Do When You Spot a Giant Anaconda (VIDEO)

Watch Video

Anacondas are scary. If you've ever seen Anaconda--you know, that horror adventure flick from 1997 which starred J. Lo where the huge-ass snake basically ate everyone in its way--then you know better than to grab it by the tail when you see one. These dudes from Brazil, however, don't, because that's exactly what they did when they came across a giant anaconda in the river.

Now that's fearless (and downright crazy!) Check it out!
